Hatters at Hilton Chambers

Posizione ottima in quartiere vivace a due passi dal centro in un palazzo completamente riammodernato, letti materassi e cuscini nuovi e comodissimi. Ogni dormitorio ha il suo bagno dedicato, completamente ristrutturato. Personale gentilissimo sempre presente. Wifi gratis e molto veloce; l'unica seccatura è che ogni 15-20 minuti stacca e bisogna ricominciare da capo l'accesso. Cucina ben equipaggiata. La pulizia delle aree comuni è ottima, meno quella delle stanze: questo è l'unico neo.

Exellent location in a quite neighbour of Pretoria. Supermarket, pubs and restaurants on 20 minutes of walk, as the Gautrain station to Pretoria Center. Wide choise of rooms, the best around the kitchen area, in my opinion. Free wifi, well working. Very well equipped kitchen, beautiful garden and swimmingpool. I stayed in the four female dorm, well equipped but a bit dark and cold (in April). That's the only downside.

The hostel is in a beautiful villa, and you feel very comfortable, like in your home. The location is great, close to pubs, restaurants and a supermarket. It is also easy to reach the center of Johannesburg, just taking minibus and spending only 9 rands. The kitchen is very well equipped and dorms are comfortable. Just the bathrooms are a bit small, but this is the only downside

It's a really special place. The first morning I awake , I found a donkey just out my dorm. There are also several dogs and cats that share common spaces with you. The dorm was really huge, with strong woody beds, very comfortable, we always slept with the door open toward the porch. Exellent free wifi. Exellent meals. The town is five km away, with huge supermarket. You can go there with shared minibus taxi. It is worth to stay here some.

The "red dorm" is spacious, beds are really comfortable, there is a woody terrace and a great view to the Ocean. The hostel is on a hill, ther is a kitchen, common spaces, a swimmingpool and a lot of green. In 5 minutes walking down to the hill you get to the beach, that is long, long, long. Just on the other hill in front, you can find a minimarket and some pubs. Wifi costs 40 rand a hour, that's really too much. That is the only downside

Really atmospheric wood-built hostel, inside the nature. Free breakfast, very fast wifi, good hot shower and really good beds in the dorm.The owners can prepare for you delicious dinner and teach you riding their white horses. There is a braai in the garden, and some comfortable hammocks where you can lie down looking at the trees and the blue sky. Tsitsikamma National Park is just 5 km away, the owner can sort out your trip there.

My dorm on the second floor was small but really comfortable, there were very useful locked boxes under the beds, where to protect personal belongings. The heating was very well working. There are a lot of bathroom, spacious and with hot shower, two beautiful and huge common livingrooms and a huge kitchen very well equipped. Also a private garden. WiFi is very fast but on charge. Good location, close to the Underground. My stay here was really nice. I will return here !

Thank you for good review of our hostel and your comments. We'll increase the number of times we clean the shower drains, as this is easily fixed if they're running slow.

The hostel looks atmospheric, but what I found really awful were the dorms. I stayed in a 10 beds female dorms and it was terrible, because the rooms are packed with bunkbeds, and there is nothing else. No boxs for own belongings, no shelves, no one hook where hanging a coat. So everything was on the floor and everyone had to trample on it. Bunkbeds are vertical to the wall and attached to one other: if you are in the down bed, you feel like in a grave. The heating was inadequate. A nightmare

This hostel ir very clean and quiet. There is a nice small terrace and other common space. Bathrooms are large and comfortable. Good wifi. Downstairs female dorm is a bit dark and its windows are without bars and open to the street: so for your safety and privacy you have to keep them closed. That is not very pleasent in the summer especially during the night. If you can, choose the female dorm on the first floor. If you don't care cook in the evening, this hostel is ok for you.

This hostel nice and well located is managed in a terrible way. Cleanliness is very poor and superficial: in my 4 beds dorm there was a lot of dust behind every piece of forniture. In five days the bathroom was cleaned just one time, so it was ever dirty and the rubbish bin was always full. The discharge of the toilet was a disaster and I had everytime to throw buckets of water to eliminate the excrement. The equipment of the kitchen was ridiculous and the stove did not work. No lockers in room

Stay here is really great. The hostel is cosy, well organized and clean. Staff is extremely helpful and present from 8 am to 10.30 pm. Beds and pillow are comfortable; rooms are provided with large lockers and with several fans. There is a well equipped kitchen and a common living room. The location is wonderful, close to the seafront and the bus stops. I recommend it !

I ‘ve really enyoid stay here. Nice rooms, excellent matresses and pillows, well equipped kitchen, fabulous shadows, lively and pleasant common spaces, fast internet connection. Staff members are young, frendly and ever present . I was also impressed by the accurate cleaning of the hostel. The whole hostel lies on the same floor, so it’s really funny and it is like to stay at home with friends. Also the location is very good, just 2 minutes from the center. To recommend !!!

Personal is very frendly and helpful; the living room is atmospheric and welcoming.The only disappointing thing is the cleaning, that is inadequate, expecially in the dorm rooms. I really suspect that bed linen are not washed at every guest change. Also mattresses and pillows need to be renewedh


Four Courts Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

One problem is that toilets are inadequate compared to the number of beds in the dorms. For istance the 12 beds dorm and the 18 beds dorm are connetted and share the same bathroom (ensuite), composed of only two showers (1 of them out of order), two sinks and two WC: too little especially if dorms are crowded. Another problem are windows, that are without wasistas: so it is difficult renewing air in the dorms
